Interesting! A few things that jump out:
Google’s Gemini ranks the rise in remote work, the hybrid work enviroment and the call by business leaders for workers to return to the office as an additional topic. These seem to be on the forefront of HR Concerns based on the news at least.
Chat GPT 4 did not include anything on ESG and DEI! This seems like an oversight.
Gemini did a better job laying out the text with bullet points and paragraphs.
I still give the edge to ChatGpt although Google’s Gemini is very close. That I think is the story. When OpenAi introduced ChatGPT a year ago, it surprised a lot of the big players (with the exception of Microsoft which owns a significant stake in OpenAi.) For Google to come out with Gemini a full year later and have their model maybe, possibly match ChatGPT’s results means Google is still playing catch up.
The biggest news on the Ai front has been the ChatGPT feature that let’s you create your own GPT and upload documents to add to it’s knowledge base. This feature has been a game changer for me and really improved the results I get.
